About Zürich

Situated in north-central Switzerland, the city of Zürich is the capital of the canton (region) in Switzerland with the same name.  Although not the capital city, Zürich is the largest city and the economic heart of Switzerland. It has a relatively small population of around 400,000 in the municipality and 1.8 million in the metropolitan area. Despite this, Zürich is a global city; its low tax rates and high quality of life attract many multinational companies to set up operations. 

It is also an important European financial centre, being home to the fourth most prominent stock exchange in the world: the Swiss Stock Exchange. Most Swiss banks and a number of international banks have their headquarters here.

Zürich’s economy is led by the service sector which accounts for around 80 per cent of the workforce. Other sectors include the light industry, machine and textile industries and tourism.  Research and development is also prominent in the Zürich region, and the city boasts two of the world top 50 universities: The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zürich) and the University of Zürich. 

Within the past ten years, Zürich has been named both the wealthiest city in Europe, and the city with the best quality of life in the world. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Z%C3%BCrich)

What form/s of interpretation can TJC Global provide in Zürich, Switzerland?

Simultaneous interpreting requires lots of skill and experience and can be very tiring for an interpreter, which is why it is common for two interpreters to work in partnership.  They listen via a headset to the speaker and interpret what is being said into a microphone for the relevant audience members taking it in turns every 15/20 minutes. 

Simultaneous interpretation like this is commonly required at conferences that involve several different languages and a large number of participants.

Consecutive interpreting is probably the most common type of interpreting and is widely used. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial discussions, legal, technical or engineering discussions, medical or court hearings or on site inspections. The interpreter listens to the speaker, often making notes, and delivers the meaning in the target language afterwards. If a speech is delivered, the interpreter may wait until a pause or the end, at which point they deliver a translation relatively quickly. Consecutive interpreting may also be used at conferences for panel discussions, Q&A sessions or private discussions between parties - at a stall or elsewhere. 

 

Facilitating interpreting is used when a client has limited English / source language skills but requires technical or in depth terminology to be clarified in their native tongue to avoid misunderstandings. The facilitating interpreter is there primarily to ensure communication is effective and relieve the client from the fatigue of speaking in a foreign tongue. 

 

Telephone interpreting allows parties of different nationalities, who are not able to meet in person, to communication via telephone or video conferencing. The interpreter bridges the gap. Sometimes an interpreter is present in one of the two locations, and sometimes he/she is also located somewhere apart from both parties.
